Deontay Wilder is in the ring again on Saturday night hoping to extend his incredible 30 fights - 30 ko wins record against heavyweight challenger Malik Scott.

Only three guys that have faced Wilder have even made it past three rounds. Nicolai Firtha was Wilder's last victim and he got stopped in round four, but he was floored twice in the opening session. Wilder has been decked once himself - by Harold Sconiers in 2010 - but he got off the canvas to finish Sconiers off promptly.

Scott is slick, with good footwork, but lost for the first time as a pro in his penultimate contest, against Dereck Chisora. Scott wasn't completely ko'd but didn't look too interested in continuing a fight against a pressure fighter like the Brit.

Scott won by ko in his last bout and he will provide the toughest test to Wilder yet. Scott likes to box and move but Wilder should even be able to beat him at this game, the 6'7'' prospect is the 2008 Olympic Bronze medallist and has a reach advantage.

Every time Scott was caught by Chisora he looked hurt and tried to wrap up the former European heavyweight champ. Scott won't be able to do that against Wilder who will fight from a greater distance. Wilder may struggle to catch Scott but when he does I don't expect it to last much longer.
